US Immigration

US immigrationlaw determines whether a person is an alien. An alien is defined as any person who is not a citizen of the United States. Immigration law describes the associated legal rights, duties, and obligations of aliens in the United states. Immigration law also encompasses the rules and method by which aliens can become naturalized citizens with full rights of citizenship.

There are two types of visas: immigrant and nonimmigrant. Nonimmigrant visas are primary issued to  tourists and temporary business visitors. Immigrant visas  permit their holders  to stay in the United States permanently and ultimately to apply for citizenship.  An alien who has an immigrant visa is permitted to work in the United States.
